The five-finger discount candidate


Darrell M. Young hopes to be elected to the Sweeny Hospital District board on Saturday based on his campaign platform of fiscal responsibility and accountability.

As far as those arrests in his past are concerned, it was merely a problem with kleptomania, the 67-year-old candidate told Michael Smith of the local newspaper.

“I needed a lot of help and I got a lot of help,” Young said. “I think the biggest thing is that if you’ve got a problem and pray to the Lord, that’s the best medicine you can get.”

Young's last arrest involved swiping two cartons of cigarettes and two jars of instant tea.

Caffeine & cigarettes & kleptomania! No place but the Sweeny Hospital District.
